The Electric (DJ Vadim presents)
Some things in life never change, the great taste of freshly buttered toast, the irregular UK weather interrupting play, a celebrity finding new ways to expose themselves and DJ Vadim building sonic vibes on tour!
The renowned beat taster known for traveling the globe in search of the best musical influences unites a collective of superb individualistic artists to make a truly international super group - The Electric.
The brainchild formed during DJ Vadim's worldwide tour for his last LP, 'u cant lurn imaginashun' (BBE), The Electric gathers the talents of Chicago's freshest upcoming mc Pugs Atomz, UK sultry soul-stress Sabira Jade, A giant English-Jamaican keyboard wizard by the name of Ste Keyz and of course Daddy Vad himself.
Their sound gravitates around the core value of heartfelt music stemming from artistic honesty, one that starts conversations and tells emotional stories of break ups, hook ups, beauty and celebration.
"The Electric for me are songs filled with, more sadness, more triumph, more faith in the supernatural. Much deeper feelings" - DJ Vadim.
Their debut album, 'Life is Moving' brings these very emotions together.
Released independently under Vadim and his wife Yarah Bravo's own label OGS - Organically Grown Sounds, it takes influences from the iconic artists of the 70's, 80's, 90's and 00's, yielding a futuristic sound covered in vintage dust.
Think Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix with some Soul 2 Soul, Cameo or A Tribe Called Quest mixed with some new Moody Man and Fat Freddy's Drop and you are near to the aural delight of The Electric. Big drums, cranking vintage synths and moog's combine dark moody passages with upbeat and chilled out moments to create hazy electric soul music sure to excite.
2009 was the year of Imaginashun... now, The Electric is the soundtrack of 2011!
